12 Bus Tours. My wonderful in-laws started doing bus tours when they retired. They organized trips to Toronto, one reason was their daughter and son in law lived there and at the time he was group sales guy for the Blue Jays, so tickets came cheap to the games.

They usually pocketed over a grand for a weekend excursion, and got to have a lot of fun with other seniors too. So, I have seen this done, and it is still a very viable part-time biz which suits seniors and other adventures. Here are some links to look at:

Very similar to what my in-laws did.

I think this is perfect for retired people. Many cities have Senior Community centers, or their parks and rec departments often will organize these. Check it out, it could be your “ticket to paradise”.
